African American Poetry (1870-1928): A Digital Anthology

Lewis Alexander, "Little Cinderella" (1926)

Little Cinderella 

Look me over, kid!
I knows I'm neat,
Little Cinderella from head to feet.
Drinks all night at Club Alabam,--
What comes next I don't give a damn!

Daddy, daddy,
You sho' looks keen!
I likes men that are long and lean.
Broad Street ain't got no brighter lights
Than your eyes at pitch midnight.
